With Al Horford already injured and now without Collins, Zaza Pachulia is now the only true center available on the Hawks roster. Rookie power forward Ivan Johnson has been getting time at the center position. At 6-foot-8 though he is undersized for the center position and might not be an ideal long-term solution.
Atlanta pursued Kenyon Martin to add depth to the frontcourt rotation but he ultimately decided to sign with the Los Angeles Clippers.
